As of this week, our community pantry and fridge is go!
Fareshare are now supplying the pantry and some of our ingredients for meals. This partnership enables us to provide more pay-as-you-feel groceries and tiered priced fresh and chilled meals and takeouts so folks can enjoy a hearty, high quality Art House vegan meal regardless of income.
It’s been a long term dream of ours to make our food and space accessible in this way, weirdly it took the pause during lockdown to help us see a way to do it!
For now the plan is community pantry and pay-as-you-feel lunches to go on Saturdays 12-3pm and community pantry (mostly veg, fruit, bread and other perishables) on Wednesday 12-4pm. We are still doing food deliveries on Fridays, too.
We don’t ask for proof of income or the reason you need the nosh, it’s about sharing what we have as a community. For now we have a space, a kitchen, helpers and the ability to do this.
Huge thanks also to our Patreon community who support us month to month and make projects like this possible!
